Our Bright Future is an ambitious and innovative partnership led by The Wildlife Trusts which brings together the youth and environmental sectors. This £33 million programme, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, is formed of 31 projects across the UK. Each project is helping young people aged 11-24 gain vital skills and experience and improve their wellbeing. At the same time, they act as catalysts for delivering change for their local environment and community; whilst contributing to a greener economy.

The Wildlife Trusts have a vision of land and seas rich in wildlife and people close to nature. We believe that nature is valuable in its own right and that everyone should have the chance to experience the joy of wildlife. We are part of nature and are wholly dependent upon it.

This is a time of immense change, when the laws protecting our environment and wildlife are at risk and people are suffering more than ever from a lack of access to nature and so environmental leadership is more critical than ever.

We are looking for an enthusiast individual with the following attributes to support the administration and communication of the Our Bright Future programme:

• A passion for wildlife and the environment
• A passion for youth voice and youth representation
• Command of written English including grammar, punctuation and spelling
• Organisational skills together with the ability to prioritise and meet deadlines
• Knowledge and understanding of social media
• Excellent customer care
• Enthusiasm, self-motivation and initiative
• Team working skills
• Good interpersonal skills including tact and diplomacy

An apprenticeship with Our Bright Future will include 20% of your working week dedicated to personal and professional development, through shadowing and supporting other teams across the organisation, research and trialling new skills and techniques, as well as completing work towards the Business Administrator Standard and preparation for End Point Assessment.
